    Wall Street whizzes turn their attentions from mortgages to another possible profit source: the $25 trillion life-insurance industry. By securitizing the policies of the old and sick, they hope to make another financial killing. At the same time, Natalie Savondnik and Ronald Goodall - two exceptional yet aloof medical residents - are working closely with their medical center's premier scientist on cutting-edge diabetes research. When their mentor dies suddenly, they launch a quiet investigation.

    What disappointed you about Death Benefit?

    The story and performance by George Guidall were wonderful! The engineering quality on this one is pretty bad (see the additional comments section below).


    What does George Guidall bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He brought life to the characters in a way I hadn't imagined when I originally read the novel.


    Any additional comments?

    I read other reviews and saw the comments about the engineering quality on this and figured it might not be as bad as described. It was sadly, worse. Chapters would end mid-word and a new one begin, not once but nearly two dozen times. I often wondered if I'd missed something as the new chapter began. I'm not sure where the quality control went on this one.
